# Invert actual bits of a number

Given a non-negative integer n. The problem is to invert the bits of n and print the number obtained after inverting the bits. Note that the actual binary representation of the number is being considered for inverting the bits, no leading 0’s are being considered.
Examples :

```Input : 11
Output : 4
(11)10 = (1011)
After inverting the bits, we get:
(0100)2 = (4)10.

Input : 10
Output : 5
(10)10 = (1010)2.
After reversing the bits we get:
(0101)2 = (101)2
= (5)10.
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Method 1 (Using bitwise operators)

Prerequisite : Toggling k-th bit of a number

## Java

Output:

```4

Time complexity : O(log n)
Auxiliary space : O(1)

Method 2 (Using Bitset)
Here we use the flip() of bitset to invert the bits of the number, in order to avoid flipping the leading zeroes in the binary representation of number, we have calculated the number of bits in the binary representation, and flipped only the actual bits of number.We have used to_ulong() to convert bitset to number.

 `// CPP program to invert actual bits ` `// of a number. ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `void` `invertBits(``int` `num) ` `{ ` `    ``// calculating number of bits ` `    ``// in the number ` `    ``int` `x = log2(num) + 1; ` ` `  `    ``// Considering number to be 32 bit integer; ` `    ``bitset<32> b(num); ` ` `  `    ``// reversing the bits one by one ` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < x; i++)  ` `        ``b.flip(i); ` ` `  `    ``// converting bitset to number ` `    ``cout << b.to_ulong();  ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `num = 11;  ` `    ``invertBits(num); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `
